|Chia Blueberry Pudding|
Blueberry Vanilla Chia Pudding
Chia seeds are powerhouses of fiber, Omega 3s, iron, potassium, and calcium (6x more than cow's milk). They can hold up to 10x their weight in liquid, so in this recipe, they absorb almond milk to create a pudding.
*Most store-bought almond milks are actually quite low in protein due to over-processing and contain additives like carageenan, which has been linked to inflammation as a gut-irritant. While making homemade almond milk may seem daunting, it is actually a cinch, and the benefits definitely make it worth the effort. See my video on simple homemade almond milk here.
